Securing Communications with SSL and the .NET Compact Framework Netscape developed SSL in 1994 as a result of the growing concern about security on the Internet. SSL was later converted to a standard called Transport Layer Security (TLS). Devices running Windows Mobile Professional and Windows Mobile Standard support SSL version 2.0, SSL version 3.0, and SSL version 3.1. SSL version 3.1 is most commonly known as TLS version 1.0 (RFC 2246). The primary use of the technology was (and still is) to secure the communication between a browser and a Web server (by using HTTP), which also is the focus of this article, but this primary use has been combined with many other technologies for email messages (SMTP), file transfers (FTP), newsgroups (NNTP), and so on. Today, SSL is an accepted standard that is endorsed by the major credit card companies (such as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express) and many other leading financial institutions.
